As I was trying to write a new blog, and watch some thirst trap vids on IG, my nose began to get runny and itchy.
There wasn’t anything remotely cute about it.
I debated making a smoothie, and convinced myself it was the natural thing to do. But, the lazy bug bit me. I was left with a tough choice:
Do I silently complain about the sniffles, while loudly sneezing? 🤧
Do I get my a$$ up, go to the kitchen and make a homemade cure?
The answer sounds simple right?
I suffered in silence and torture for a good 30 minutes before I went to the kitchen.
I rummaged through my fridge and thankfully found strawberries, accidentally frozen cucumbers, and ginger. I took them and thought of some garnish to accentuate the flavor.
- Strawberry 🍓
- Cucumber 🥒
- Raw honey 🍯
- Cayenne pepper 🌶️
- Ginger Powder
- Seltzer Water (lime)
I washed and chopped my fruits; followed by drizzling the raw honey, a few sifts of ginger powder and a dash of cayenne pepper. Now, you don’t have to use seltzer water for this part, just a liquid of your choosing. (Seltzer is life, tbh)
After I was satisfied with my ingredients, I put them in one of my many blenders (a bottle one for this purpose), and juiced them to my liking.
As a Guyanese Woman, I’ve been eating spicy food most (if not all) of my life, and this did give me an excellent burn ❤️🔥I might have added too much ginger powder. Nonetheless, it did what it was supposed to do.
I’m a slow drinker when it comes to smoothies. So, I was sipping it for a while. It never lost its delicious vibe. But no lie, a couple hours later my runny nose subsided and I was a happy camper.
The thirst traps on IG became more appealing to me 🤪
